Between the redesigned 2020 St. Croix Imperial Salt 8wt rod and Cheeky’s Updated Launch 400 Triple Play Set, this ready to fish combo can tackle just about any midsized saltwater fly fishing application the Northeast has to offer. The Cheeky Launch 400 Triple Play includes two spare spools that we have rigged up with a Royal Wulff Floating, an Intermediate line, and 300-grain fast sinking line. With three different quality fly lines at your disposal in a matter of seconds, this allows the angler to quickly adjust their tactics to reach any part of the water column. Whether you’re targeting blitzing bluefish with poppers, subsurface bonito that refuse to rise with the bait school or fickle bass that are clinging to structure on the bottom, this setup has an answer. With a moderate taper and a mid-flex the St. Croix Imperial is perfectly suited for casting and lifting everything from shooting head floating lines to dense fast sinking lines. If you are looking to greatly widen your saltwater fly fishing horizons, look no further than this combo.
